Watch Breaking Bad's Mike learn about menstruation in a 1974 PSA

Jonathan Banks’ portrayal of Mike Ehrmantraut on Breaking Bad hasn’t just inspired Gatorade-style “Be Like Mike” videos—it's also driven people to dig back into Banks’ career, and thank heaven for that. Entertainment Weekly has unearthed a 1974 PSA that Banks appeared in, charmingly titled Linda’s Film On Menstruation. The period piece—zing!—is about just that, and Banks plays Johnny, Linda’s hairy and medically naïve boyfriend. Banks pops up at about 1:10 in the clip, so fast forward and be amazed.
